Photo Number 1926

This is a Cabinet Card from the antique shop in Detroit Lakes Minnesota.

Unknown Couple  DL Ant

Jacob L. Skrivseth was the photographer he moved to Hillsboro N.Dak. in 1882 and opened a Studio there.   The photographer was also the Mayor of the town.

This remains an unknown couple.   The groom wears a three piece suit with a flower in his lapel.  The bride wears a not white not dark gown with large sleeves, the gown has trims and she wears a flower on the bodice of her gown.

Thank you for stopping by.

  1. "In the fall of 1879, Skrivseth became a partner of O. E. Flaten in Moorhead, Minnesota. The two men apparently built a traveling wagon with a built-in dark room. "

    It's almost an Ole E Flaten!

  2. That's interesting that the photographer was also the mayor. I wonder if that was sheer happenstance.
